In December 2016, the IKBFU organised the VIII colloquium in Physics “Technology of thermally assisted magnetic recording: past, present and future". Dr Dieter Weller (Dieter Weller, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, Western Digital, San Jose, USA), a visiting professor of the IKBFU, gave an open lecture for IKBFU researchers and students of the Institute of Physics, Mathematics and Information Technologies.
The company Hitachi Global Storage Technologies has been developing hard drives and solid state drives for industrial storage of especially valuable information. It has been delivering storage for many market segments, including industrial companies, as well as companies specializing in mobile computing and consumer electronics.
Dr Dieter Weller gave an open lecture to IKBFU researchers and students. Participants of the colloquium discussed the formation and development of magnetic recording as well as the use of products created on the basis of these technologies in the industrial sector.
Dieter Weller, Professor (San Jose, USA,):
I have been working in the field of magnetism studies of thin films, storage systems and information recording for more than 30 years. After my graduation from the university, I had a great choice of what to do and where to work. I chose Siemens, where all scientific advances are quickly turned into smart technological applications. My research work today contributes to the development of technologies that make people’s life more comfortable.
During my stay in the IKBFU, I had a number of meeting with my colleagues. We discussed some ideas for joint research projects. I am looking forward to cooperating with Dr Michael Farle and the team of IKBFU researchers.
